Kacie Yeakel came to the PVH family in June 2015 by a different way than most: her family members were established clients at the hospital, and that’s how she first came to considering possible employment here.
“I absolutely love animals, especially dogs, and from being a client, [PVH] seemed like a really nice and professional place to be,” she says.
Kacie graduated from Red Lion Area Senior High School in 2017 and after spending a year and a half at Elizabethtown College on a track for pre-vet, she changed her mind about her long term career. She is currently attending YTI in their Veterinary Technician Program. Once completed the program, she hopes to pass the Veterinary Technician National Examination to become a certified vet tech. After that, she hopes to continue in small animal practice.
“The most challenging part of the job is dealing with things [I’m] not familiar with,” she says. “[But] the most rewarding part is seeing animals happy after they get better and just getting to work with animals in general, as well as the learning opportunities that I’m getting.”
The Red Lion native’s love for animals extends outside of PVH however. She currently has two dogs; a great dane named Sully and a boxer named Opal.
In her spare time, Kacie loves to listen to music and spend time with her beloved animals, as well as her family.
